439 Cantitoe St, PO Box 488, Bedford, NY 10506

Resulting from a 1973 merger of the Bedford-Rippowam School and the Cisqua School, this country day school prepares graduates for secondary boarding, day and public schools. The curriculum incorporates both traditional and hands-on educational programs. RCS offers allied arts and computer science programs in grades K-9, a Spanish curriculum that begins in kindergarten, a cross-cultural approach to humanities, social studies and foreign language beginning in the middle school years, and a portfolio and thesis project in grade 9. Optional in the lower grades, community service becomes compulsory in grade 9. Parental involvement is an important aspect of the program. The Cisqua campus in Mount Kisco accommodates children in grades PS-4. Grades 5-9 convene on the Rippowam campus in Bedford.
